BLOOMFIELD, NJ – The Township of Bloomfield is excited to announce a roadway resurfacing project on Ampere Parkway from Bloomfield Avenue to Floyd Avenue. As part of this comprehensive initiative, the project will also improve the piping and catch basins in the area to improve stormwater drainage during common storm events.
"This project marks a significant step forward for the residents of our community, who won’t need to worry every time it rains about navigating dangerous and inconvenient flooding or ponding conditions,” said Councilwoman Sarah Cruz. “While we recognize the necessity of making these improvements, we are also committed to preserving our natural environment and ensuring a vibrant and resilient community for generations to come, exemplifying Bloomfield's dedication to balanced, sustainable development for the long-term benefit of our residents."
The focal point of the project involves replacing undersized drainage pipes beneath the island between Royalton Place and Turnbridge Road, which requires the removal of existing trees in the vicinity. However, in an effort to maintain and enhance green spaces within the community, every tree affected by the project will be replaced upon completion.
The Township is also making infrastructure improvements in other locations to enhance overall road quality, with ongoing resurfacing projects on Raab Avenue, Rowe Place, the installation of new curbs on Emerson Terrace and Davidson Road, and a resurfacing project beginning this spring on Chester Avenue from North 15th Street to Grove Street.
While the paving of these roadways may extend into the spring, the Township ensures that the construction sites will be maintained in a safe and clean manner once activities cease for the season.
